Where I stayed
Great sites; the Eiffel Tower is very impressive in person, and the Louvre houses the best artwork collection I have ever seen (my favorite is the "Coronation of Napoleon" by David). Food: Crepes, pastries, baguets, duck, fresh fruit all very good. City with good food so I splurged a little. One of my favorite places I found was an Arabic teahouse that is next to a mosque in Paris. I hate tea, but this tea was good and an anbiance that makes one feel like in the middle of an Arabic city/country.
I am having an issue waking up on times since London and this is following me to Paris. I missed my train from London to Paris, but caught the next one a 1/2 hour later. I bought an alarm watch for the specific purpose of waking me up, but it hasnt worked one day. I think its all the walking im doing; 5-10 miles a day I estimate. I get home late and so tired, but I need to push on to get everything in during my stops.
I HAD NO INTERNET CONNECTION FOR 4 DAYS!!!! I dont know how people w/o internet access do it. Sorry for the delay in posting, but France was not cooperating. Enjoy the Paris pictures.
